Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Juice Machine was originally devised and brewed to support our very first trip to Extreme Beer Festival in 2014. We’ve revived and tweaked the original recipe on a 30 BBL scale and brought new life and experience into the idea of an obscenely hop saturated yet juicy and delicate Double IPA. It is essentially a marriage of the King Julius malt bill with a hopping intensity schedule similar to that of Very Green. The use of Magnum, Columbus, Amarillo, Citra, and Galaxy creates perhaps our most complex drink with unapologetic flavors of tangerine, mango, lime, papaya, and grapefruit with waves of dankness. Hop burp nirvana, indeed.

so perhaps this one improved with age but those saying this batch of JM is meh either dont like juicy IPAs or are out of their fucking minds!! its a gorgeous looking brew pours out hazed golden orange with a dense and creamy bright white head that leaves great lacing. mellow aromas of pineapple, peach, and mango. but where this one really shines is the palate - somehow it manages to be incredibly robust and simultaneously soft, delicate, and smooth. there is heaps of candied orange, creamy peaches for days, mango, slightly spicy pineapple, lime, grapefruit, and a subtle herbal green quality, a mellow smack of bitterness on the finish perfectly compliments the soft and creamy flavors, hint of that signature TH bubblegum and cereal malt. mouthfeel is lush which accentuates the intended flavors. had to really concentrate on not chugging this because it was so easy drinking and smooth. while TH was one of the first to master the haze juice IPA, making a ridiculous IPA is no longer exceptional but without any question this one fits into the 'perfect' category in my mind.

Hard to get hype- DDH Fort Point kills this as well as a lot of other recents- Lone Pine Chaos Emeralds. Even their own Super Typhoon much better. Glad to try but underwhelmed

I'll preface my review by stating that the can of Juice Machine I was able to track down had a bit of age on it. Predictably, the beer had fallen off just a bit.

However, it seems to have aged nicely. It has taken on just a bit more yeasty, malty mouth feel and taste. The sweet juiciness is still very pleasantly present, but the taste and mouth feel aren't really to my liking. The tropical fruit, though, is quite a nice surprise.

I preferred this, in a sitting, over Very Hazy - which makes it a pretty decent beer, in my opinion. Hype has it rated higher than I would have though.
